mostly to the moderator, jim lehrer of pbs. >> we still have trillion dollar deficits. the cbo says we'll have a trillion dollar deficit each of the next four years. >> reporter: these two men, they are virtually strangers to each other personally. they've only met in person three times before tonight. most recently, in passing, on a debate stage in new hampshire way back in 2008, when republicans followed democrats in debate three days before the primaries. and there was this brief encounter on the campaign trail in 2007. >> good luck to you today. >> reporter: and while they have both reached the pinnacle of party politics, they are so different. their talents and their paths to power and their debate styles. so much at stake on that stage tonight. this showdown comes at what might be the critical moment in this campaign. a hinge of political history. polls show the race tightening, just 34 days left in this campaign. and you can already sense in the crowds the special energy of the home stretch. but tonight, surprisingly, and in contrast to the daily scrap on the trail, no zingers,
would make as president. >> i'm sorry, jim, i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs. i'm going to stop other things. i like pbs. i like big bird. i actually like you, too. but i'm not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from china to pay for. that's number one. >> that comment definitely ruffled some feathers. in fact, someone created a twitter handle "fired big bird." he or she has sent out several tweets and pictures, fired big bird has already more than 23,000 followers. >>> the vice presidential candidates will face off in their only debate a week from today. it will take place at center college in danville, kentucky. the maryland congressman chris van holland has been playing the role of paul ryan. >>> the next presidential debate will be on october 16th in long island, new york. the second debate will take place on the campus of hofstra university and will be in the format of a town hall meeting. that means undecided voters will ask the questions. the candidates will focus on foreign and co-do mdomestic pol. >>> tim kaine is opening up a gap in the virginia
the last word of the segment. i'll make the comment. i'll stop the subsidy to pbs. i like pbs and big bird and i like you, too, but i'm not going to keep spending money on things to borrow money from china to pay for it. they said they could provide the service without a cost and at a lower profit. if that's the case that will always be the best product that people can purchase but my experience is that the private sector is typically able to provide a better product at a lower cost. >> let's let him respond. >> i had five seconds before he interrupted me. >> this was the debate tonight that was substantive. thick with policy and it had a few moments of very sharp contrast. >> this is where there's a difference because governor romney's central economic plan calls for a $5 trillion tax cut. on top of the extension of the bush tax cuts, that's another trillion and $2 trillion additional military spending that the military hadn't asked for. that's $8 trillion. how we pay for that, reduce the deficit and make the investments that we need to make without dumping those costs on the middle-class
, jiem, i like pbs. i like big bird and i like you too but i'm not going to keep on spending money from things to borrow money from china to pay for it. that has to be negotiated with congress. when i ran for mayor, i said i was going to cut taxes by a certain level. i didn't know how i was going to do it exactly. i had to negotiate that. so i think he's given as much specifics as president obama ever gave in 2008 when he ran for president, probably a lot more. >> mr. giuliani, just to make sure how much news was made tonight, am i still correct that the romney campaign's official position is they want to extend indefinitely or permanently the push tax cuts on the table, which would cut taxes for high income individuals? i don't think that's a matter of debate yet mitt romney seemed to repudiate that. >> if you extend the bush tax cuts, you keep taxes where they are. if you don't extend the bush tax cuts, you raise taxes. >> they're set to expire. it was your party that set them to expire i would add. i didn't to that, the republican party decided to do that. >> it's an accounting measu

are heading off to denver to co-anchor this presidential debate that will be moderated by pbs' jim letterer. is there any chance we get a question on this give up this is the big news the past couple weeks? >> reporter: no. i think the restrictions on jim lehrer are pretty tight. unless a candidate brits up i think it moderator has a responsibility according to what they signed on to to get it back on track to the topic that they were supposed to stay on. so it will be interesting to see if that happens. but it won't be generated by jim hehrer. megyn: unless he goes rogue. >> reporter: if he goes rogue then we have an interesting story. megyn: when you think jim helrer you think -- now don't. see you at 6:00 p.m. on "special report." we got a fox news poll of what likely voters are thinking about the president's handling of libya. more voters, 43% say they disaproper of the president's handling of the attack. in just a short while we'll be joined by andy card, the former chief of staff for president bush. we'll ask him how he thinks the media would be covering it if it were his boss in the
to play video of may 3 of the houston pbs forum when you are asked, do you want to do away with bush tax-cut? >> the very thing we will have to do -- we will have to let the bush tax cuts go. in order to pay down the national debt. at the end of the day, if you look at the budget, a look at the budget you get down to military and defense spending or the bush tax cuts. >> are you talking about the bush tax cuts on all income levels? >> there is no qualification in that statement. what i said, and i still stand by, there are three things that doubled on national debt -- the bush tax cuts, -- >> the question is, do you want to expire them in total? there was no qualification. >> i am getting there. i think, and i still say, that we have to look at every single one of them and determine if we can use some of that money to pay down our national debt. we can lie to the american people or tell the truth. the truth is that those tax cuts, if we let them expire, will increase our national debt by almost one-half. >> what is your position, mr. cruz? >> i would not allow the bush tax cuts to expire

. romney not making any friends with pbs, the station is also fighting back on romney's plan to cut its fund-raising. and that romney does not understand the value americans place on public broadcasting, and the return in its investment. the corporation gets about $450 million a year. that might sound like a lot but it is just 1% of the entire federal budget and works out to just about $1.35 per american. as for the winners of the debate, well that goes to republican fund-raising. romney's super pac restore our future is not giving out any specific amounts but they did say the day after the debate is the best day it has had the entire campaign. the national republican senor toal committee send an email praising romney's performance and asking for support. more coming up next. we'll be right back. ♪ viewer for capella university. matter. >> i wouldn't be where i am today if it wasn't for capella university. i go to work every day and know that i make a difference. when patients leave this office they have hope in their eyes. it make me feel like i'm really doing what
had a complete monopoly in 1980. they had three networks. they had pbs, the "new york times", you know, they drove it. george h.w. bush in 1987, 1988, they had contempt for bush. and they somehow got the message out. this is the great frustration that mitt romney can't make the basic arguments about a failed economic policy over the past three and a half years, a failed foreign policy, and it's just maddening. i know you probably can't say it on tv in the same way that i did but every conservative i talked to, they're just so frustrated. >> i think they're frustrated in part. this is the difference between clinton and frankly the last -- every republican nominee since reagan. i mean, reagan was a democrat and a tv star and movie star who got communicating. regular democrats get corporate meetings. i mean regular republicans. there is almost this republican consultant culture that says your job is to go raise money and i'll buy clever ads. as a result you don't get, i mean no president has been more vulnerable to an aggressive opponent than barack obama. for the reason you're saying. so
